Subject: the help, the dancin, the slip...
released as filler as part of the DOWNLOAD SERIES VOL. 4, even the audience portions are worth getting.
for me, i say, if the band is coming through loud and clear, i can get past the screaming audience bits -- what can you say, take or leave it, it's part of the package. if you cannot evaluate the music beyond the audience distractions, then just leave it alone.
otherwise, they are just killing it this night. the Help is VERY HOT , up tempo, and leads into a righteous, fully fulfilled Slipknot!
dancin is a smash, absolute RIOTOUS good times -- highly recommended music --
MUSIC: 5 Stars, AUDIENCE DISTRACTION: -1.5/2 Stars = 4 STAR SHOW.
Subject: simple equation
Subject: Not always taper-friendly
On a side note, the whole thing of a band or venue acting as though it has a right to do anything with a taper's gear galls me. There need to be clear laws about what actions are and aren't appropriate toward someone who tapes without a band's permission. Otherwise you have a wild West situation, which invites violence somewhere down the line.
The taper section got created because of conflicts between the tapers and other folks about who got priority in where to sit, where to setup, etc. Some tapers would move into a sweeter-sounding area, leaving their ticketed seat and moving into someone else's. The someone else would complain, and word got to the band and and the band told Healy to sort it out and the taper section was created.
4 for performance and 2 for sound = 3
Subject: pretty please with sugar on top!
show: 4.5 stars
ps- good points Acid Queen
Subject: Bootleg Recordings
Anyway,even though this was an AUD recording, with lots and lots of crowd yelling and cheering, it's still nice because the 'tapers' back than were really 'taking a chance'. My hat's off to them! THANKS MUCH, GUYS!
Subject: that '76 sound
